My tree arrived today!
Though it might look like a paper urn on first sight, it’s in fact the packaging of my Joe Strummer memorial tree certificate. It arrived only a week after I’d bought it online and includes a cool Strummer-style note and a map of where my tree (and all the others) resides, in case I want to hug it one day.
You gotta love the man even more for ideas like that. After having thought about how much pollution his and other band’s constant touring is responsible for, Strummer decided to plant as many trees as it takes to make up for it. And of course, he couldn’t help but tell the rest of the world about the idea.
Planting a tree is always a good idea, I thought. Specially if it is in memory of the greatest singer ever.
